The gospel is the power of God for salvation – justification, sanctification, and glorification. We were saved, we are being saved, and we will one day be finally saved. Christianity is not about rule following – we don’t earn our approval from God. Jesus made a way for us to repent, believe the gospel, and follow Jesus.
So how does this all work in Christian parenting? Does the gospel get in the way of calling our two year old to obey us? Owen Strachen (a Maine boy) pulled together a brief post that helps answer that question.
